    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Challenging environment, where you can learn a lot only if you are curious and you push yourself
    - Strong culture, this can be a "problem" for people coming from other types of organizations/industries
    - Worldwide organization but with a startup spirit
    - One of the fastest growing company in the world, let you experiment many things, and moving around it's pretty easy
    -Good salary and benefits

    Cons

    - Work-life balance can be sees as a light cons
    - Middle management, can be sometime inexperienced and lacking of management style

    Advice to Management

    - Amazon is experiencing a massive growth, which is good, but at the same time the management has to keep an eye on the recruiting. Indeed, during the hiring processe you might be tempted to hire someone that has good experience but low cultural fit. In the long term this will be a big problem.
